How to get[edit | edit source]

Silverback Patriarch is uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Silverback Patriarch is generally considered an overcosted/understatted card, with very little potential despite its Beast type. New players may find this card of use if building an early game Taunt-heavy deck, but it is otherwise not recommended.

As a Beast, it has synergy with Hunter cards such as Starving Buzzard and Scavenging Hyena. There is also some potential synergy with Druid cards like Wildwalker and Knight of the Wild.

Within the Basic card set, Silverback Patriarch competes with Ironfur Grizzly in the 3 mana slot, which is superior when stats are compared (2 more Attack at the expense of 1 Health). Various cards from other sets are strictly better/cheaper when compared stat-wise:

Lore[edit | edit source]
